A typo.

Each variable (and function and command and macro and ...) described
in the manual must be indexed.  So please add

  @vindex auto-save-quiet

before this paragraph.

Also, this text should say what is the default of this variable.

Btw, I'd prefer to call the variable auto-save-no-message.
auto-save-quiet might not make its intent clear enough, IMO.

Thanks.
